Best Golf Gloves 2022

Which are the best golf gloves for men and ladies to wear in 2022?

Jump to: Men’s | Ladies

The humble golf glove might not seem particularly important, but when you consider that your hands are the only part of you that touches the golf club, and the hand that plays the biggest role in your grip will be wearing a glove, you start to realise why you should choose your golf glove quite carefully.

Studies have shown that 98% of golfers wear a glove that is too big for them. A golf glove should feel very tight when you first put it on. You shouldn’t be able to pinch any material on the palm or fingers. If you can cover all of the Velcro with the fastening tab, that’s another sign it’s too big. Don’t be alarmed if your brand new glove feels a bit restrictive at first, it will loosen up within a few minutes or a few shots on the range.

Leather golf gloves give the softest feel, which is why they’re preferred by most professionals and discerning amateurs. The downside of leather golf gloves is they don’t tend to last as long as synthetic ones and they’re generally more expensive.
